Nothing is more poetic than the beginning of a love affair. A man and a woman meet, they smile at each other, exchange a few words or notice each other from afar and suddenly they feel inspired and become poetical within. But as soon as this love becomes physical, their feelings of wonder start to fade. How many people have noticed this! Yes, they have noticed it, but they do not draw any lessons from it: they make no effort to protect their blossoming love by remaining in the subtle regions for as long as possible. Through curiosity and greed, men and women seek to go out immediately and explore the terrain, and even what lies beneath! Then, of course, things are no longer the same. They do not appreciate each other in the same way and are no longer in wonder, one for the other, as they know each other too well in situations which were not always the most attractive. Why do they not try to keep a certain distance between them so as to live as long as possible in the world of beauty, poetry, and light?

Loving the divine in others

Love the creator, the One who is the origin of all life,and you will feel him manifesting in every creature. It is he, the One, whom you will love in others, and only he can feel the longings of your heart and soul. So many men and women, famous throughout history for their amorous adventures have had tragic destinies precisely because they did not understand this truth! The beings of flesh and blood you claim to love or to be looking for are only intermediaries, conductors meant to transmit divine energies. If you wish to continue to love them, think of restoring contact every day with the world above. You don’t need to worry about who you will love or who you wish to be loved by. First love God and he will appear to you; he will smile at you and fill you with joy through his creatures. You will love them and be loved by them, because it will be the deity dwelling within them that you love, and they will also discover …

Love is stronger than death

No one can deny how painful it is to lose a loved one. But love allows us to overcome the pain. You think the more you love someone, the more you will suffer from such a separation. At the time, you will, without a doubt. But if you have truly loved someone, in time another kind of relationship develops between you, and you feel their being as a constant presence. And at night, in your sleep, you are also with them. In the morning, you may not remember meeting, because the journeys the soul makes during sleep rarely reach awareness, but you will feel the connection growing stronger and stronger as time goes by. God did not place limits on love. Love is stronger than death. Those who have shared true love are never parted; their soul overcomes all material obstacles.

Universal, unconditional love

Seek to help and show love for all human beings without expecting anything in return, because they are all our brothers and sisters. In doing so, the reward is already given to you in that inner sense of expansion and that extraordinary sensation of warmth that fill you when you love. This is a marvellous reward; life contains none greater. Your heart can then be likened to a flowing spring. Human beings always expect to be rewarded for what they do. Those who have understood the secret of love don’t even expect receiving anything in return, for they already have a taste of the happiness that nothing else could bring them. And, because they are fulfilled and have no expectations, they radiate joy and win the trust of many friends. What better reward could you hope to find. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov I read this passage this morning as it is the Daily Meditation for today. I think the idea it expresses is very closely related to the passage I posted a few days ago- Nature …

Into the light

I speak to you only of yourselves, of realities that exist within you. Even if you are still not aware of their existence and do not fully understand what I am referring to, I know that through my words I am contacting an entity whose only wish is to come into the light. This entity can be compared to a lotus that begins to develop underwater before blossoming on the surface. Things are born, take shape and begin to grow in the darkness of the subconscious. By the time they rise to awareness, they are no longer in their early stage but have almost reached completion, because they have already been in motion for a long time. In the same way, my words awaken in your deepest being a presence, a spiritual entity, which will one day emerge, like the lotus flower, to blossom above water. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov  

Be patient and you will live a long life

Be patient and you will live a long life. You might say, ‘But that is not possible, you need so much energy to put up with difficult situations and with difficult people!’ No, on the contrary, you waste the most energy when you are impatient. Calm and patience enhance vitality and prolong life. People who explode and then say, ‘Ah! That feels better!’ do not realize that what they consider to be better is actually a great loss. They should analyse themselves to find out what it is within them that feels better – is it their higher nature or their lower nature? And when they reflect on their explosion a little later, do they really feel pleased with themselves? Don’t they tell themselves it would have been better if they had known how to control themselves? Try experimenting within yourself to see how effective the virtue of patience is. Instead of resorting to all sorts of syrups, potions, elixirs and other beverages, drink patience! That is what will renew the powers of life within …

Love is an energy from on high

Love is not just the feeling humans have for one another. Love is an energy that comes from on high, an energy that has the same quintessence as the sun. The task of men and women is to take this energy into themselves and allow it to circulate in them in such a way that it then returns to the heights, from where it came. If it does not circulate correctly, it means that many impurities have collected within them, because they have not put enough effort into controlling their instincts and passions. So instead of this energy rising again, it descends further and becomes buried in the regions of the lower astral plane, where it is lost. When we have worked to become purer and have gained self-mastery, the energy that comes down each day from the divine Source will be able to circulate through us and return to the heights. For according to the Creator’s concept and construction of the universe, love’s starting point is in heaven, and its end point is also …

Limitless ocean

The limited cannot understand the limitless; so human beings, who are limited, cannot understand God, the limitless. Or, to be more precise, they cannot know him as long as they remain outside of him. They will only know him once they enter this immensity, merge with it and become part of it. As long as a drop of water is separate from the ocean, it cannot know the ocean, but when it returns to the ocean it can no longer be separated from it; the drop has become the ocean, it knows the ocean. You will say, ‘But humans exist within the universe, they are part of it, they are not separate from this limitlessness, from this infinity that is God.’ Yes, but they are not conscious of it. And in fact, they often consciously separate themselves from God, to live their personal life cut off from cosmic consciousness and then declare that God doesn’t exist. So, if you want to know God, you must consciously merge with him, lose yourself in him. You will …
